DV capture setting gone [BUG]
For the capture settings, I only have an option to capture HDV and not DV. This only occurred after I updated my macbook pro to Catalina. Please fix this issue
Brian Eley commented
I'm paying a fortune to Adobe and they are NOT sorting this capture problem.
I have just loaded BLACKMAGIC software and it captures perfectly and it's FREE.
Will be dumping Adobe soon THIER SUPORT IS TOTAL ****.

Please fix this problem or just admit that after over a year it's not going to happen and users who need this have to move to competitors' products.
Erica Lamb commented
I agree with the others. Please fix this problem.
Familie Worringen commented
Yes, this solution is possible, Frederic, but you will loose automatic scene-detection AFAIK.
I heard of a general feature in most recent Premiere versions that does automatic scene detection, but that would be an additional step in the workflow and I haven't tested it myself.
Frederic Täckström commented
I found an alternative solution. Import dv through Quick Time. You get .mov-files that you easily import to Premiere with command i.

Please fix this ASAP.

Please fix this issue. I am interested in using older tape based formats.

Really need this fix!
Lukas Rosen commented
give the feature back
Joachim Worringen commented
@Kevin Monahan, that is not true. FireWire DV capture is still supported in MacOS Catalina;it's just that an old driver framework for this has been removed. Premiere would have to use the new one.
Like, using iMovie, capturing is still possible.

Please find a solution for this! (or give information if this is considered to be fixed in the future) It is essential to a lot of videographers.. I´ve spent a lot of money on dongles for the new macbook, just for DV being discontinued a year later. Like this there is no point in me using Premiere anymore.

Basically I was lucky in that one computer in my house is still on Mojave (OSX 10.14.6) and I can capture video....but this creates an idiotic urgency to now transfer every single tape I have, soon, because I know Apple won't tollerate me not updating forever. This is so dumb for so many reasons. People will be slowly archiving, digitizing, and compliing their home videos for decades to come. This reminds me of getting rid of Adobe Encore way too soon. If I'm going to compile a family video series, I would definitely want to put it on a DVD or Blu Ray.
Too much change too fast can lead to serious problems and loss of memories. Imagine if Kodak was pulling **** like this every 5 years from 1920-2000 when people were still using mostly film? We'd go bananas trying to digitize them for the next century. Not every collection is known. People will find tapes in closets of dead relatives and want what's on them. For better or worse, a lot of Firewire gear still works and needs to interface with Apple hardware.

Please find a way to fix this issue as many of us have archival tape that needs to be accessed to make our films. I am seriously reconsidering my subscription to Creative Cloud and I will urge my company to think of another program too as this has stopped work altogether at our end.

Adobe, think of all of the documentary filmmakers and TV producers who use Archival footage. Removing DV/Firewire Capture is completely eliminating a central component of video production. Videographers / TV /Filmmakers must have capability to capture footage from different sources to use in all types of productions. Why would you take this away ? Capturing from DV / Firewire devices is essential, even in the year 2020 and beyond. If this bug is not fixed, then clearly the film and TV industry will change platforms to another company that still offers this necessary component of production. Apparently it will need to be a cooperative effort with Apple's OS team to make this happen, but it will be well worth the effort. Simply thinking of filmmakers, videographers and your customer needs instead of efficiency and "progress" for your company is a key to this problem. Bring this function back and everyone will be happy!
Kevin Monahan commented
Sorry to tell you. I believe the tech to support FireWire capture of DV no longer even exists in Catalina. I don't think it's possible moving forward to consider for engineering. Some problems are like this. I would use any older versions until you purchase new camera gear.
Lisa Shingles commented
Please fix it!!
Rogier van der Voort commented
Same here, got a couple of costly adapters in the hopes of capturing some old tapes...
Chris Clark commented
Please can you fix this Adobe
Brian Murtagh commented
Also chiming in to express my disappointment after purchasing necessary firewire to thunderbolt adapters and getting ready to import dozens of Mini DV tapes with Premiere Pro to find out that there is no DV capture setting. Please fix ASAP!
